Mon. May 8, 7 – 9 p.m.

1450 West 64th. Ave., Vancouver



Keiko, a survivor of the atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima and left her with disfiguring radiation scars, is chosen from hundreds of young women to receive plastic surgery in the United States. Radiance does not only tell Keiko’s story, but also Daisy’s, her “house mother,” while exposing the tensions and contradictions that riddled the U.S. during the 1950’s.
